Wedding planning update: 10+ months to go

25 October 2011

Wedding planning took a bit of a backseat this month (especially compared to last month!), but I still feel productive because of what we did get accomplished.

— We finally signed a contract and put down a deposit with our recalcitrant venue
— We chose a caterer and signed a contract with them (SO excited about our pick!!)

November promises to be a full month, with likely decisions on a wedding gown, bridesmaid dresses, a band, and ceremony musicians!
